Appliances - Large
Make an effort to repair your broken large appliance to extend its useful life, or if the large appliance is still in working condition, consider donation. Large freon and non-freon appliances are prohibited from landfill disposal and require special handling. In addition to the sites listed below, consider using platforms such as Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, Freecycle and Nextdoor to list and find items for reuse, resale, or giveaway.
Large freon appliances:
Examples: Air Conditioners • Dehumidifiers • Freezers • Refrigerators • Water Coolers
About refrigerants: Many older refrigerators, freezers, and air-conditioners contain ozone-depleting refrigerants (CFCs/Freon) that are regulated by law and must be removed by a professional. Each molecule of a CFC can destroy more than 100,000 molecules of the earth's protective ozone layer. Appliance recyclers capture CFCs and avoid releasing them into the air. Do not attempt to do this yourself.
Large non-freon appliances:
Examples: Air Purifiers • Dryers • Furnaces • Oil-Filled Radiators • Ovens • Stove Tops • Stoves • Trash Compactors • Washers • Water Heaters • Water Softeners • Thermoelectric coolers
